Elephant Flimsy!

The top is finished - it has been fun! Basting next and then to hand quilt with Perle thread.I will use various different colours of thread, so let's hope as I get into the swing of it, the stitches will become even - well sort of anyhow, as I'm not one to let it send me crazy if not! I was lying in bed last night reading my Kindle and covered by an old fine hand quilted quilt - I would have been so hard on myself at the time I did it and now I look at it and think wow! - I just love it!


This is really not a good pic, my next project! Sampler by Karen Cunningham - now where am I going to get all those yummy fabrics? By the way, this is just the centrepiece, tiny blocks, let's hope the patience lasts as I really love this quilt. No instant gratification here, let's hope things go smoothly in my life.
Happy weekend all!

Hi Lurline,Love your elephants. I've seen The Sampler in the flesh, it's so lovely. I know you'll love it. Definately a long term project!

Have fun with that elephant party. Sometimes I think we are the hardest judge to satisfy. Even my first quilts with stab-stitching are not so bad.

The elephant quilt is great. If I would a child I would love to receive it. Love the color and whimsey.

The elephants are gorgeous! It is going to look lovely quilted in the perle.

The Karen Cunningham quilt is going to keep you busy for a while but well worth the effort.

Hi, Lurline. I have also started to get the patterns for the Sampler quilt. I am working on finishing other quilts first. Have not found any fabrics I want to use in it either. My stash sure will containe something usable.
Love your elephants:o)
